The 138th Annual Masonic Picnic was held Saturday with Masons from all three Davie lodges convened to break bread and raise funds for the Masonic Childrens Home in Oxford.

“We appreciate all of the picnic baskets that were brought by folks from all over the county,” said Will Marklin, Mocksville mayor.

Boy Scout Troop 575 helped park and unload cars while Caleb and Sara Davis entertained.

HR and the late Modene Hendrix were honored for their years of service to Davie County with a plaque and proclamation by Judge Jimmy Myers.

“I would like to say a special thanks to Miller’s, CJs, Deanos and Kent’s Kitchen for donating food as well as to all of the local businesses that purchased commemorative posters recognizing this longstanding event,” Marklin said. “As long as the community continues to support this event the Masons of Davie County will make every effort to keep this tradition alive. Please make plans now to attend the 139th annual picnic which will be held Aug. 10, 2019.”
